I just think it is ridiculous for us to be worrying about every single copyrighted file with this small quantity of copyrighted uploads. Let the moderators moderate when they can, I'm sure they realize that there are a few questionable uploads, and as an earlier user posted, it would be impossible for them to police everything. I didn't even realize there was copyrighted things on here until I read these posts about them. No one else would have either. This is a case of Streisand Effect (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streisand_effect). Also, the onus is ultimately on archive.org, not you, to police for these files. I don't see a report button, do you?

Don't post about this on the forums for risk of aggravating the problem, email the moderators if you feel you absolutely have to, and as a previous poster indicated, this obviously would have caught on a lot earlier if it was going to be a problem. With the existance of plenty of other blazing fast, free file-upload sites that don't care about copyrighted uploads (rapidshare, megaupload, depositfiles, hotfile, mediafire etc.), why would people start flocking to upload on archive.org?
